ST. PAUL  (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton is heading before a skeptical audience of business leaders, some of whom tried to keep the Minnesota Democrat from office.

Dayton makes remarks Thursday to the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce session priorities dinner, a heavily attended event by heads of companies large and small.

Groups aligned with Minnesota businesses spent millions promoting Republican Tom Emmer and attacking Dayton during the recent campaign.

Dayton has said he wants ideas from businesses on how to change the way Minnesota government works. But he has also made some executives nervous with his call for higher income taxes on those with the biggest paychecks.
